My Top 5's of 2016

2016 is coming to an end.  With the New Year just a few days away it's time to look back on my year in books and to do my Yearly top 5's.   This year I have read over 300 books. The most I have read in one year.  Some I loved.  Some I didn't.  This is also the first year I DNFed a book.  There is a few new top 5s added this year.   Like Top 5 Newly Discovered Authors, because I came across some really great authors this year and I want to share the love.  It was so hard to narrow it down to just 5 for each of my categories.  Not all my picks were published in 2016 (only the New releases top 5) just read  for the first time in 2016.  I will link my Goodreads reviews for my picks to the cover pics.  So just click on the cover to read my thoughts on each book.    Let's get this party started!
